    I wouldn't be looking to a flyfishing forum for that kind of information.

    "Yes, your honor. Iflyforfun on WFF.com said it was legal to chase someone down and stab them in the back for stealing a 6 pack of Oatmeal Stout from my unlocked car." ;)

    If you can park without the tweakers seeing you park, put a sign in the window, "Honey, I'll be back in a minute. Love, Alex"

    I guess the beer got too expensive or changing up demographics?

    First time I met the father-in-law, a notorious drunkard, was at a shitty townie bar with a wall of champions. The place was called "Stars" in Hingham, Massachusetts. See if you drank every single brew in the house, they'd punch your card and 200 beers later you'd get your name up on the wall, with a star beside it, you were a champion. Get it? Stars? Right well anyway. Old man F-I-L has like twelve stars on the wall, so he's a twelve star alcoholic and all. And I look at the selection and out of those 200 beers I order up a Sheaf's Oatmeal Stout. Dude looks at me, pauses to suck in some smoke, and in his thick Boston brogue, "that's the wuust fuckin' beeah they have in this baahh"

    I wonder how much more effective the honey I'll be back in a minute note might be if there's an NRA sticker in the window and an empty gun rack?

    I've always thought a Marines sticker and possibly NRA sticker on the back of the canopy would do a lot to deter any crooks. But, I'm not a member of either fraternity and have too much respect for the Marines to place their sticker on my truck knowing I don't deserve it.

    I am a knife guy! But only from the stand point that it is a tool. Most of my knives are one of a dozen or so SAKs. But I do have 2 or 3 that might be construed as "tactical". All you really need to do is google images for knife fights and you will come around (i promise you) to the position that NO ONE comes out of a knife fight well. MAYBE, and a rare maybe, if you've had something like special forces training. And It's very possible that the BG has had some training, in which case you (or I) are likely fucked. Don't go there.

    An old adage that some of you have heard, and I fully believe is: "If you're going into a fair fight, your tactics are wrong." The courts don't believe this but my opinion is to keep your powder dry until the line has been crossed. Then, no mercy. I too am capable of horrific acts.
    But don't listen to me.

    Hm. Maybe the NRA sticker, honey be right back note, (or, Cletus, be right back in poor handwriting) and an empty ammunition package on the passenger seat.

    Nobody has suggested leaving one of these in your rig while fishing

    For sure. But I'd sure rather have a knife than a fly rod if I'm assaulted with a bat etc. One hit to the head and it's over. My colleague took one punch to the jaw after verbally confronting someone attempting to break into his car. He went down, struck his head on the pavement and went into a coma. Lived, luckily. They have a knife, I'm doing everything to get the HELL out of there; fight only if I'm pinned w/o any other option. Knives have saved people in rare wildlife attacks, although I'd prefer mace, horns, etc.

    Now THAT'S a great idea. I'm going to borrow this idea if you don't mind.
